2011 Melbourne Underground Film Festival: The Trailers

By Mike Everleth ⋅ August 18, 2011

Movies will be destroyed once and for all! The 12th annual Melbourne Underground Film Festival is upon us with their great theme of Destroy All Movies. The fest runs Aug. 19-28 and to mark the anarchic occasion, filmmaker Palomar has created two official festival trailers, embedded above and below.

MUFF12 opens on the 19th with the highly controversial A Serbian Film by Srdjan Spasojevic, which has been banned all over the world, including most recently in South Australia! So, if you’re an Australian citizen living in or near Melbourne, take this rare opportunity to see this movie that many of your fellow countrymen won’t be able to.

Other films screening at the fest include the epic documentary on the world’s most dangerous artist, Boyd Rice, Iconoclast directed by Larry Wessel. Plus, there are homegrown flicks like Chris Sun’s Come and Get Me, Boronia Backpackers by Timothy Spanos, Dicky Tanuwidjaya’s The Devil’s 6 Commandments, J. Harkness’ Birthday, Johannes Roberts’ F and a ton more.

The fest has also announced the film playing at their “Mystery Screening” on Aug. 28 at 7:00 p.m. It’s Jon Hewitt’s X, a dangerous thriller about two call girls on the run from a murderous maniac.
